The goal is to boost your page views and increase the time users stay on your site.
What is included in the 'Fully Managed' package?
Access to the Dealership Tools Marketing Platform is the same for every package; the difference for the fully managed package is that Dealership Tools is responsible for populating the content on your site.

Purchase Our Fully Managed Package
What elements will be removed post purchase?
Upon subscription purchase, the un-editable Dealership Tools marketing aspects of your site will promptly be removed. The Dealership Tools “How To” guides and subscription information articles will be removed, and the footer content will be updated to your company information.
Additionally, any other editable default data that the Dealership Tools team notices you haven’t updated quite yet will be made apparent. With the purchase of the ‘Fully Managed’ or ‘Marketing” package, the team will update this data for you. However, if you do select the ‘Self Managed’ package, Dealership Tools will provide you a list of the items the team believes you should update.
If you need additional help, Dealership Tools will be available to aid your staff with “How To’s” on updating your site and get you moving in the right direction.
*1 If your company opts for our fully managed or marketing package, we cannot take on the management of your preowned boats because we do not work on site. It would be easier for us to train a 1-3 of your employees on how to enter boats so you can enter the information right then and there. Having you send us all the details and then s entering it would be double work for both teams.
*2 Brochure Boats will be similar to the boats you find on the manufacturer sites. We will be sure that any models that are currently being produced by any of your manufacturers have a place on your site. This will make it visible for your customers to contact you and have you start the ordering process.
*3 We do not currently have the functionality to process purchase payments. You will be able to manage your lead in our system up until the time of sale, once your reach a sale point you will need to process the payment through your company’s purchasing technology.
